Is your sweet tooth pulling you towards some candy and a scoop of ice cream? Then you have found your place, SWIRLSwirl has about 11 different flavors of ice cream and millions of different candies. My new favorite ice cream flavor is Swamp. Swamp tastes very much like Oreos and the chocolate chips and M&M’s in it give it a nice crunch. Another flavor of ice cream that I love is good ol’ fashion chocolate. I think that Swirl’s chocolate is a little sweeter than other places but definitely in a good way. They have recently added a new flavor, Eggnog. I thought their Eggnog surprisingly tastes a lot like peppermint and is very sweet. My brother’s favorite flavor is Mud. I think that Mud tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup. I don’t like peanut butter but my brother says Mud is awesome.  

Swirl also has one of my mom’s favorite, vanilla frozen yogurt. The yogurt tastes almost like French Vanilla ice cream. The frozen yogurt is the hard type. I prefer the soft frozen yogurt.  Swirl also has 3 different cones to choose from. The sugar cone tastes sugary sweet and is crunchy when you bite it. The wafer cone tastes almost like cake and melts in your mouth. The waffle cone taste very sweet and is similar to the sugar cone but it is much bigger. Some other flavors that I didn’t get to try were Cookie Dough, Pumpkin, Peppermint Candy, Strawberry, Coffee and Mint Chocolate Chip.

When I walk into Swirl I feel like I am stepping into a candy land because there is candy on almost every wall and shelf. From gummies to chocolate covered dough Swirl has it all in glass jars, you buy it by the pound.  The other types of candy are on the go candies; like Push Pops and Sour Head Spray.  Swirl also sells lots of trinkets for kids, they make great gifts. There is only 1 table and 2 benches inside Swirl and more tables outside. The colors inside (green, light pink and baby blue) make me feel happy and energetic. I think that swirl is a little pricey but is definitely worth it!  I think it is really cool that there is such an awesome ice cream place in such a small town.

I give Swirl 4 pickles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
